Biological and physical sciences PhD students at Liverpool will have the opportunity to study in Japan thanks to partnership that has been formed with RIKEN.
RIKEN is Japan’s flagship research organisation carrying out research in physics, chemistry, engineering, infectious diseases, medicine, brain science, biology and plant science.
Following the a lecture given by Professor Ryoji Noyori, Nobel Prize winner and President of RIKEN, as part of the University’s Science and Society lecture series, the University and RIKEN signed an agreement for a joint international graduate programme. It will enable PhD students studying biological and physical sciences at Liverpool to spend up to two years working at one of RIKEN’s institutes.
The next lecture in the Science and Society series is on Monday 22 November with Professor Larry deLucas, Director of the Center for Biophysical Sciences and Engineering and former Chief Scientist at NASA, who will speak on his first-hand experience of working in space on the US space mission. Visit the website for further information.
Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Science and Engineering, Professor Stephen Holloway, said: “Our new graduate programme with RIKEN will offer students an unrivalled opportunity to study with some of the best scientists in the world utilising frontier technology. We are also looking forward to developing our research links and collaborating on key projects to help tackle some of the global challenges facing us today.”
